- Objectives: The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of some medium on tubers of decoction water on the growth of C. albicans and find out the type of medium of tubers boiling water which produced the best growth of C.albicans colonies. This study used the experimental method of Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with repetitions of 5 times so that the total number of 25 experimental units was obtained in which pure strains of C.albicans which were diluted to 10-4 were inoculated on each medium using spread plate technique and incubated at 37oC for 48 hours. The parameters observed were the number of colonies, shape, size, color and sporulation quality (pseudohifa and blastospores). The results of the analysis showed that alternative media of tubers boiled water had an effect on the growth of C. albicans and the medium of taro and cassava were better medium than other alternative medium and the quality of spore growth was comparable to the growth of spores in other medium.
